Eligible students accepted for the guaranteed fixed tuition rate still qualify for need-based financial aid, but will not receive merit-based scholarships or grants due to the significant savings offered through the flat tuition rate.

If accepted for the guaranteed rate, the Office of Financial Aid will provide you with a comparison of your costs with and without the guaranteed rate so that you can choose the option best for you.
